Nothing Lasts Forever - Santa Barbara, CA

Dr. Keller is a fantastic physician and teacher of surgeons who, at the time of my surgery, had done the most Endotine Midface lifts in the nation. I researched online the various techniques for lifting the midface (cheeks) and consulted with 2 other surgeons, both specialists in plastic surgery of the face only, before choosing Dr. Keller.

Natural Looking Facelift; A Younger Version of Me - Santa Barbara, CA

The ratings are for all the reasons stated above. Dr. Keller's reputation and proven results are what led me to choose him. All you have to do is go for a consult and look at some of the before and after photos. His work speaks for itself. In addition, his staff is top-notch. They all put you at ease and make sure that you're very well cared for, both before and after the surgery. They give you very realistic expectations for recovery. Their timeline has been pretty much spot-on.

By Dulce. Wanted a Youthful Appearance - Santa Barbara, CA

Dr. Keller's bedside manner is patient, soothing and willing to explain his techniques. He takes the time to answer all of my many questions and continues to do so.. The After Care from Dorothy is over-the-top and the best I have ever had for any kind of surgery. I didn't have to call after my surgery. She always checked in with me daily for the first several weeks. I never felt rushed when asking questions like I do with most doctors. Staff is always friendly, courteous and caring. They work with you regarding the payments. Usual wait time is 5 to 10 minutes about the same as most offices.

Excels at Bringing About a Very Natural Result So That People Notice the Beauty, Instead of the Surgery - Santa Barbara, CA

Dr. Keller and his staff are AMAZING! Not only is Dr. Keller "the man" with regard to the respect he receives from the FACS community, but he is one of the kindest men I have met. He excels at bringing about a very natural result so that people notice the beauty, instead of the surgery. His expertise, experience, commitment to excellence and his warm and caring personality make him a rare find and trustworthy doctor. Dr. Keller's staff is incredible... they work together so well to provide the best case possible for their patients, providing plenty of information in advance, during and afterwards as well as lots of genuine care and sensitivity to the patients needs. My expectations were far exceeded and I am very happy with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Keller and his staff on all counts.

He's a Pro: I Could Not Be Happier - Santa Barbara, CA

I choose Dr.Keller because i wanted a natural look to my facelift. Which is exactly what I got! My own mother couldn't tell that I did anything - AND when she saw me after a few weeks, she just thought I looked rested (:

A Senior Aging on Her Own Terms - Santa Barbara, CA

Dr. Keller is a professional. He's not in the business of telling you what you need, but rather what would make you feel better about yourself. His approach is to stay as natural as possible with fixes that make you look refreshed and not remade. He's a master at his craft!

Best Surgery Experience - Santa Barbara, CA

My experience with Dr. Keller and his staff was absolutely amazing. I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Keller and his staff because they are the best of the best and I am so glad that I chose Dr. Keller to perform my rhinplasty because they took great care of me from the first day that I went into the office. His assistants and staff were all so nice and made me feel very comfortable before and after surgery. They called in all my medications and called me numerous times to check up on me. I felt very cared for and in extremely good hands of Dr. Keller. Even though I was a bit nervous about having surgery and especially on my nose because I was not sure how it would look after surgery. Dr. Keller showed me how my nose can potentially look after surgery, but his artistic results did so much more than the computer image! I am still in shock at how great my nose looks and the natural look that I have. I am beyond pleased with my results and only 4 months out from surgery my nose is looking better and better each day.
